Make Me Feel (Believing) (feat. 0phelia, Breezy Ideygoke, King Koko, JusMe)

by Danny G & the Major 7ths

(Breezy) Seeing is believing Watch how you're speaking Haters on beef Till they're ironed out, vegan Girl you got the sauce Can't move pasta Never been a fake Or a phoney Imposter Say you got the D, d, drip… How you have that Corner boy still reeking of ganga Mummzy's golden child Puffing on silver haze Hmm, true say, you've seen better days Anything I'm grabbing baby Know that it's for keeps Got to refocus switch up the scene Made me reshoot the shot for these dreams That's a stretch, that's a reach, 'Til you believe, We could take struggle But I'd rather take chances Anything in life Can be made an advantage I've got peace with the peaceful You know what I mean Oya, get clicked in (Danny) Got me Believing In something (King Koko) 2020 everything kinda scary Coronavirus got people buried Threats of World War 3 RIP Kobe Mad earthquakes happened in Turkey but I'm just doin me tryina better myself Busy gettin money gettin racks on the shelf Mama told me to forget her Told me not to sweat her Haters stay cheesy might call them cheddar Look me, I ain't no basic chick, My bars complex like arithmetic Believe me when I say get a walking stick Cos my haters stumble when I speak legit Bring the sauce girls stay dry My work is fire Don't mean July Can't compete with me baby nice try King Koko's wordplay Will leave you tongue tied (Danny) Give me good feeling You've got me smiling again (Grainne) Believing Don't go leaving (Danny) Now I'm believing Something you do You've got me You've got me smiling again I'm gonna get it (Grainne) I'm gonna get it (0phelia) Exalt as yer default, for all people Particularly for individual freedom(s) No need to believe. We're all destined to feel the free fall No need to worry. There's No finish line we can foreseeeee And nothing is bigger than that Invite a tiger on your path for a wrestling match Just the perfect habitat for a dip-il-omat With the necessity to throw the hands like an acrobat Take a bow, Take a stand but make sure you can receive love increase your capacity love kindle kinship with distinction Stimulate connections inextinguishable … And nothing is truer perhaps I betch've moments that ye snapped cause ye couldn't relax What we become we attract It's a science exact Ye can perceive it as you will but it's a matter of fact


Make Me Feel (Believing) is the new single from Danny G & the Major 7ths featuring an all-star cast of Irish hip-hop artists. Breezy Ideygoke, 0phelia & King Koko provide the verses. The track is a rework of the song 'Believing', reimagined by producer JusMe, using samples & audio stems of the original to create something entirely new. The instrumental version is exclusive to Bandcamp.

Danny: "I'd been a fan of Breezy's for ages. I worked with 0phelia on my first album, and DJ Stevie G put me onto King Koko. I reached out to them and everything was recorded remotely. We've got 3 completely different rap verses, each with their own unique personality, energy and style. 0phelia got beatmaker and skratchologist JusMe involved which was a gamechanger - he transformed the instrumental, and I sprinkled some of my original vocals and flute from our track 'Believing' on top of his production. What we've ended up with is a feelgood summer banger with a positive message.

The intro features interviews with Sinead O'Connor (2020 - talking about her mental health) and Seamus Heaney (1995 - speaking about his Nobel prize). The two clips struck me in different ways, O'Connor's for the bravery and power of her words "we're all going through these things". And Heaney although he's speaking in '95, could be describing today's lockdown in Ireland - "a new mood in the country that promises new energy". Even though there is this frustration and anxiety at not being able to play live music, it also seems like Irish artists are on a creative high right now, particularly in the Soul / Hip-hop arena. The struggles of lockdown can force you to get to work DIY style and find new ways of making music, and for me this track is a perfect example of that."
